Subject: [PW] ? Death Date of Etta Blaisdell McDonald (Quotation Query #797)

Can anyone help me to determine the death year of Etta Blaisdell McDonald, who was born in 1872 and, under the name of Clara Murray, published The Wide Awake Primer and other books in the early 20th century?  I believe she originated the quote "Run, Spot, run! See Spot run."
